We’re going to change that. - The Washington Post: "Public interest groups say there aren't nearly enough tech geeks working for nonprofits and in government. New research from Mozilla and its partner, the Ford Foundation, finds that barely 10 percent of computer science students wind up working in those sectors. The vast majority — 70 percent — go to big, wealthy tech companies. While that's great for Google and Facebook, Mozilla believes building good public policy around technology means attracting more technologists directly to public service.

So the maker of the popular Firefox browser is kicking off a fellowship program designed to put young engineers in a position to affect how tech policy, "

Next Generation Philanthropy: A Conversation With Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen | Bobbi Silten










Q: For the past 14 years, you have taught a strategic
philanthropy class at Stanford Graduate School of Business. Why did you
start this course?


A: The reason I initially embarked on a
teaching career and still continue to teach today is to provide the
resources, networks and materials to prepare students for careers as
philanthropists, change makers and social entrepreneurs. Through a lens
of consumer empathy, I have created and am constantly refining and
evolving the courses for Stanford undergraduate and graduate students
that I wish I could have taken to prepare me for my career.
